We have come to the end of a heatwave which has given us a few months of amazing sunshine, scorched the land and given us a bronzed look.
Everything we have planted in the potager has bloomed, grown and is now ready for picking, mainly thanks to the fab watering system that Kev installed.
The only part of the grass that has needed cutting is the plush green grass circular patch that the sprinkler has reached.
Over the weekend Kev and I started to harvest our crops, with the help of Barnaby Pickles of course.
Our peppers have been ripening in the sunshine and turning lovely shades of yellow and red.
Kev cleaning off the red onions.
We picked 185 red onions and left them to dry in the sun for a few hours.
Kev came up with a great way of drying them, courtesy of single bed slats
Kilos of overripe tomatoes were picked.
And turned into pasata source.
French beans were bagged and have been frozen ready for winter dinners.
Now weeding and fertilising to be done before planting winter veggies.
